The other day, I was bored so I made this. Much to my dismay, Danpb posted his own version very similar to mine, so I just posted this to see how everyone likes this one too. I consider this done, but I'll make improvements if any suggestions come up.

Here's the overall view:

The front view:

The back 3/4 view:

The attic/office:

The 2nd floor bedroom, with a door opening up to a balcony:

Ground floor with living room and kitchen:

I hope all y'all like it. :grin:

I won't build this, because I don't have the pieces, or the money to spare to get them. All the pieces are available, according to Superkalle's super-duper LDD Manager and me double-checking on BL, so if anyone wants to build this for me, go ahead :sweet: :tongue:

That's fantastic 'prateek' - the office desk with coumpter is simple yet very realistic ! :thumbup:
The kitchen too is excellent, the bed room too is cool - except you won't want to sleep walk or you'll fall down the stairs ! :laugh:
You should have done this for the LDD contest......anyway, great LDD work and keep on bricking 'prateek' keep on bricking ! :sweet:

Wow, this is an awesome job, prateek!  The home office is brilliant - along with the layout of the first floor.  It is quite funny how similar our LDD homes are :).

The height of your ceiling was a good call.  Mine is a bit too high, making stairs a bit tricky.  I want to add a third floor, but I also want to use the second floor for a living area.  The problem is, No third floor means no bedroom - bit of an odd house, no? :)

It's a bit funny how we both put our kitchens under the stairs :).

Awesome job!  Let's see if our next MOCs end up the same :P

That is quit a nice building. However there are quite some improvements that i can think of. For example, I would have made the upper side windows one stud back, so that the central window column stands out. I am also missing a gutter at the roof. And of course the floors should separate. But overall I like the front of the building.

I like the fact that you've made a detailed interior. Extra plus for that.

Thanks. I wish I made this before my actual entry, but I made a bigger bank instead.

Thanks. I can't wait to see what you end up with on your finished model :classic:

1) If I push the windows back, there won't be space for the stained glass, which I really like.
2) I know there is a missing gutter, but I don't care for realism :tongue:
3) Since I built this on LDD, and not in real bricks, I didn't mind to put detachable floors in. I guess I just forgot :grin:

Thanks a lot sens1992! Since I built this on LDD LU mode, I can't check the price of it. If you want, I can give you the LXF File and you could use Superkalle's LDD Manager to check the price. :classic:

Thanks, Superkalle. I was gonna leave it without an interior, but without one, it looked really bland so I just made one. I'm glad with the result. :thumbup:


BTW, in all honesty, if I entered this in the LDD contest, would anyone have voted for me? :laugh:

Thanks. The kitchen is almost exactly the same as Danpb's kitchen in his LDD house. :tongue:

Good job, Prateek! The exterior design is nice, and the interior is even nicer. I love the kitchen and the chairs in the living room. The bedroom is great, and the attic office was a great idea. Well done!

Nice work Prateek.  Have you considered building and displaying it at this summer's Brickfete?

No chance! If you want, you can build it for me :tongue:

BTW, I think this building will fit in well with the new modular set. When someone posts an LXF of it, I'll post screenshots of this along with the Pet Shop.
